Step 1

Whisk together the mayonnaise, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper and the cayenne pepper in a large bowl. Add the cheddar cheeses and roasted peppers, and gently fold until combined. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Step 2

Heat your grill to high for direct grilling.

Step 3

Form the meat into 4 uniform, fairly flat patties, each no thicker than 3/4 inch, and then make a deep depression in center of each with your thumb. Brush both sides with oil and season liberally with salt and black pepper. Grill until golden brown, slightly charred on both sides and cooked to medium, about 4 minutes per side. During the last minute of cooking, spoon a dollop of the cheese mixture on top of each burger, close the cover and cook until cheese has just, melted, about 1 minute.

Step 4

Put the burgers on the buns and top each with 2 slices of bacon and some cilantro leaves.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



This was a really yummy burger. I wasn't sure what to expect......but I was really pleased. I used diced pimentos rather than opening a larger jar of peppers for one serving. Good stuff. I would repeat this one. Thanks, Tersesa for sharing.
